Trivia Edit

  • This is the 1st episode when the 2 unfortunates have a draw after the challenge was succeeded, the last one being Series 3, Episode 12 (Glasgow), where Daniel and Darcy had a tied vote on Floor 4.
  • On Floor 3, Mbalwani was the only unfortunate to vote for the saboteur which was Adam and everyone else voted for him.
  • Lauren does not receive any votes on each floor. She is the only winner in Series 3 to have this honor.
  • Adam is the last saboteur in Series 3 to sabotage the challenge on Floor 6 and escape the floor.
  • During Series 2 and 3, the unfortunates jump through the trap door in the order they are standing from left to right. However, after Body Shock, Mbalwani jumped through the hole before Maria despite Mbalwani standing at the end of line.
  • During Body Shock, after the last blackout, one of the Botherers was holding a hand when he got shoved back into the cage by Matt. The Unfortunates failed to notice this, with the missing hand causing them to fail the challenge.
  • As of this episode, Extraction is the most played Floor 3 challenge, overtaking Wicked Wardrobes from Series 1.
  • Mbalwani is the only saboteur in Septic Sewers to occupy the pipe on the farthest right. Incidentally, in Septic Sewers next and final appearance, Series 3, Episode 11 (Leeds), the saboteur (Jack) occupies the pipe on the farthest left.
